Monday has given me a terrible headache. No joke. As I type, every click of the keyboard makes my temples throb. I can't take the "Excedrin Migraine" med that ALWAYS stops my headache because my pain didn't start until 8 p.m. If I take my favorite over-the-counter, I will be up all night long. So I have to settle for Grocery Store acetaminophen. Yep. Which means I'll have a headache all night long. Sigh.
My day started off really well...considering that I went to bed last night at 1:30 am. (Spring Break really messed up my sleep schedule!) I woke up on time, had all of my things packed and ready to go. Even my new haircut was jammin'...until I walked outside. Humid southeast Texas weather = flat hair. No kidding. By the time I got in my car, my hair looked like I didn't bother to fix it. Yay.
When I get to school, the wind is blowing hard and I do everything I can to get from the car to the building without losing my loot. (Hair is a lost cause, at this point.) As soon as I walk in the building, the heat and humidity hits me like a wave. The district tries to save money by turning off the air system over extended holidays. So our two story building feels like an oven until about 11. Yay x 2.
My quarters actually had a good day. We worked on some pre-STAAR activities and I taught them a game or two. It felt good, even though some things didn't go as planned. Yay x 3.
After work, I get back into my "workout routine" that I am paying for every month. I haven't been to the gym in 4 weeks and it's time to get back into it. Can you say pain in my thighs and shoulders now???? Yay x 4.
Definitely a Debbie Downer day for me. But hey...tomorrow's a new day. There's a forecast of strong thunderstorms and flooding. I bet my hair will look great...until I walk out the door. Ha ha ha!
Leaving the pity party...
I just want to share a quick picture of the tracking cards some of my struggling quarters use to track their reading.
I leave you with this:
